Flame-retardant interior linings for passenger trains
Our SIMORAIL product family unlocks new possibilities when it comes to the interior finishing of passenger trains. The products combine the benefits of simple handling and superior thermoforming properties with the merits of multiple design options that will transform any rail car into a genuine eye-catcher. Specially developed to meet the requirements set out in EN 45545, our low-flammability SIMORAIL sheets also offer superior safety when it comes to fire protection.
SIMORAIL sheets are available in three different fire protection classes and in thicknesses from 1 to 6 mm. As a result, we are able to offer you one of the most extensive ranges of thermoplastic products for train interiors – perfect solutions tailored to your requirements. Typical areas of application with regard to passenger train interiors:
- Wall coverings
- Window panels
- Ceiling elements
Our SIMORAIL sheets are certified in accordance with EN 45545. The standard was developed on the basis of existing fire protection regulations for rail vehicles issued by the International Union of Railways (UIC) and various European countries. It defines consistent pan-European fire protection requirements for materials to be used in rail vehicles.
The standard defines three different hazard levels (HL) as well as test procedures and test requirements for materials used according to the respective hazard level (R requirement sets). SIMONA HL2 meets the requirements of HL2 for R1, which covers approx. 80% of the interior components used in the rail transport sector. SIMORAIL HL3, our premium product, meets the requirements of the highest hazard level HL3, which applies to rail vehicles such as sleeping cars, for example. Both products also comply with NFPA 130, Boeing BSS7239 and Bombardier SMP800C, the most common North American standards.
SIMORAIL products are manufactured under closely monitored conditions to ensure consistently high quality. The sheets have excellent physical and mechanical properties, complemented by an outstanding surface finish throughout their service life. What is more, they can be easily thermoformed to create even the most intricate components. In addition, SIMORAIL can be machined without difficulty using all standard processing methods.
Our experts will be happy to assist you with regard to the forming and processing of our products – whether by e-mail, telephone or at your premises.
Our SIMORAIL product family offers endless possibilities for the design of rail car interiors. We have a selection of different textures that give the sheet an exceptional feel. The colours can be adjusted individually according to your wishes – for the ultimate in creative design.
We love plastics. And our environment. Our SIMORAIL sheets make a valuable contribution to the conservation of resources by replacing heavier materials such as metal or glass fibre-reinforced plastics and thereby reducing CO2 emissions. Thanks to their special property profile, SIMORAIL sheets also have a particularly long service life and can be fully recycled at the end of their service life. As early as at the production stage, we make sure that material waste is returned to the production process, thus guaranteeing minimal material loss along the entire production chain.
